Editorial Reviews

Third release from veteran jazz group Native Soul. Follow-up to previous effort Soul Step (which reached #18 on the national jazz charts), presented in an acoustic format with new twists on familiar tunes by Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, and Lennon & McCartney. Saxophone titan Peter Brainin propels this powerful quartet through these ten wonderful selections. Features Noah Haidu, one of the up & coming pianists of his generation, along with acoustic bass giant Marcus McLaurine and the exceptional drumming of Steve Johns.

Format: Audio CD
Native Soul is "for my money" one of the best kept secrets in jazz today. The third release which is a departure from the previous effort Soul Step which reached #18 on the national jazz charts, ventures into a more acoustic format with some incredibly inventive reharms of tunes from Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, and Lennon & McCartney along with some killer original tunes.

To be honest...every fiber of my being told me I would hate this release :30 seconds in. As a former radio announcer and having played one of the three previously mentioned artists once every 45 minutes for 4 years - you do math. It's not that I don't like the artists but much like spending quality time with my dad, there has to be something better to do... Once again preconceived notions and running out of coffee are a critics worst enemies. One Mind is an organic fusion of four voices coming together in a musical synergy seldom heard. Distinguishing a leader is impossible nor necessary. Peter Brainin is an extremely underrated talent as a saxophonist, Marcus McLaurine is a virtuoso on bass that doesn't get the credit he deserves along with Steve Johns on drums and one of the hottest pianists on the scene in Noah Haidu.

Drummer Steve Johns shows off his compositional skills with "Malinda." Braunin does his thing on soprano while Johns owns the pocket and plays with the old school finesse of a Max Roach. "Baby You're A Rich Man" is not an easy cover by any means. Native Soul dials it back and lets Brainin blow it out with a soul drenched solo along with some well placed comp work from Haidu which won me over about :30 seconds in. Shifting meter and dynamics on the fly the harmonic flavor exhibited here borders on addictive.
